What games did you play when you were a child? Do you remember playing with other children from your family and community? Do you remember the fun you had and what you learnt without even realising it?
How to get books and reading materials for your reading club
Children learn to read by reading! Although this sounds obvious, we often forget the age-old example: If you plant a seed, you must keep watering it so that it grows into a strong plant. It is the same with reading. Once the seed of reading has been planted, you need to nurture it so that their love of reading grows stronger.
Reading group activities to keep kids coming back for more
Here are some activities you could offer during a reading club session. You do not need to do all of them each time the reading club meets. Most reading clubs with several children and some volunteers like to do some activities – like games and songs, reading aloud and storytelling – in every session. Choose from the other activities depending on how they link with the books and stories you are sharing with the children and how much time you have available.
